Login problems

Post by jls »

I have installed the WordPress w3all phpBB integration plugin in WP but not the phpBB extension in phpBB.

My administrator login works on both WP and phpBB, but logging into one does not log me into the other.

When I register a new user in WP, the user is correctly added to phpBB. However, the new user login will not work for WP, but I can use it to log directly into phpBB. Resetting the password while the WP w3all phpBB integration plugin is activated does not fix the problem. If I deactivate the plugin, some of the WP passwords will work without resetting and the others will work if I reset them. If I reactivate the plugin, all WP logins except for the administrator stop working, but the same passwords work for direct login to phpBB.

WP: 6.1.1
phpBB: 3.3.8
PHP: 7.4.33

Suggestions to fix this?

Code: Select all

Admin UID1 in WP and UID2 in phpBB are not linked.
May you refer to this?

About logins: instead of passwords, which happen because the hash the plugin use is the one of phpBB in WP for users, so yes when integration disabled may some user, if pass re-hashed, need to reset the pass, but are you sure that the cookie setting of phpBB is ok, and you followed all steps about phpBB side?

and ... are you sure that the user you use to test have an email that is not shared with someone else in phpBB (two users in phpBB using same email)?
... just to mention what come in mind on fly...

The problem was the cookie domain setting.
Everything seems to be working now.
Thank you!
